Ordered these after having to deal with calf pains due to old shoes. I run both streets and trails and it does feel like I have to wear thicker socks to run on the steets to cushion the space in the shoes. Otherwise I have no more pain and the shoes are working great!

Fits like a dream and has gorgeous high quality leather. The problem I'm debating is whether I can deal with the squeaky leather. Once I got everything all cinched up the boots were quite squeaky. Maybe they just need a little trail dust...I found the quality of construction and feel to be better than the Scarpa SL Activ and the Lowa Tibet GTX. Weight of a pair of size 12.5 US was 4lbs 8 oz.

The comfort level due to the flex panels (the black areas on the upper and tongue) combined with the memory foam heel cup, shaft collar and tongue gives this boot a significant advantage over the competition. This boot has the most natural and secure flex at the ankle I have ever experienced without any lace biting, pinching or hot spots. The flex panels allow for a completely snug comfortable fit without having to over tighten the laces to prevent excessive internal foot slippage while descending or braking. Those flex panels have flexible Gore-Tex. The Last on this boot is slightly wider than the Last on the Scarpa Kailash. The toe box has average room so long as you don't need a thicker than average insole. The arch support is average to low in my opinion and the sizing is consistent presuming you base your sizing on a 1/2 size up for comfort approach. I wear a 10.5 in most of the models from the major brands and this one is no different. This boot uses a great outsole that allows for a natural gait and has high self cleaning properties. This boot is clearly a leap forward in comfort. The only negative, if you can call it that, is the fact that Scarpa uses EVA for the midsole. While this may be fine for many people and their uses the fact is that PU, polyurethane, is far superior in durability, longevity, support and stability. Scarpa implements PU in other R-Evolution models, with different technical features, but those are not sold here in the U.S.. I would hope that Scarpa will add a PU midsole to this boot in the near future so that it can compete on the same level of support, durability and shock absorption as their Kailash. Zappos, best brands, best service, simply the best!

2015 model initial impressions. I tried the older version and was not overly impressed. The new version for 2015 which is the one listed as the color Cigar/Fog has some note worthy improvements. The eyelets on the new model are of much higher quality and durability than the outgoing version. The outsole allows you a noticeably smoother gait in a wider variety of terrain in my opinion. The PU midsole has improved impact reduction while maintaining good lateral and longitudinal support. I have an average size arch and the boot provides a good arch that doesn't feel to high or too low. As most of you reading this probably don't use factory insoles I can say that the insoles that comes with this boot are better than average but I do not use them. Ankle flex was good on the outgoing model but it is slightly better on the newer one. As a quick comparison, the heel cup, tongue and shaft padding is far, far superior in comfort, density and it appears to be a better quality allowing a much higher level of comfort when compared to a Lowa renegade and the Scarpa offers better off road support from the midsole. The Last on this model is slightly more narrow than the Scarpa E-Revolution if your curious. My very first day of use I moved over 800lbs of material, not at one time of course, on varying terrain with no hot spots or issues what so ever. This boot feels great when carrying 25-35lbs and feels as though you could carry more without issue. The outsole is not completely self cleaning but it's not that bad either depending on terrain composition. I have found that for the overwhelming majority of boots I need to order 1/2 size up to be in my comfort zone. This is true overall for Lowa, Scarpa, Asolo, Ecco, etc. and I find that these are no different. Even Scarpa's web site will tell you to order 1/2 to one full size up based on your activity. So, I would say these are true to size because the 10.5 fit just right and it is clear that a 10 would be cramping my pinky toe. The toe box has good room and overall this shoe provides for a medium/medium plus volume foot adequate space without being too tight or feeling cramped. All in all, Scarpa did a great job making improving to a well liked boot where it was needed.

Scarpa makes amazing shoes! They are comfortable, great colors, and so far very durable. This is one of three pairs of shoes or boots made by them that I now own. They are true to size and the weatherproof models are truly That! Having tested them in the mountains of AFG. Thank You!

I started with the Zen as a work shoe. The shape fits my foot (medium width but long second toe, size 48). This was a very good fit because of the pointy toe. I tried the Mojito for travel. Same general style but lighter weight. I have walked all over Rome, Florence and Genoa without any blister or hot spots. Excuse the hyperbole but they have been the best lightweight walking/hiking shoe ever. I measure 13 (46-47) but always buy oversize due to middle toe.

I've gotten numerous compliments on the style of these shoes. I really like them too. They fit and look great. They fit and wear like Chucks.

This is my second pair and I've now worn them about 12 hours, including a quick jaunt up the Horsetooth Mountain Trail in Colorado. Shifting production from Italy to Romania doesn't seem to have hurt quality. Maybe the opposite: the odd feeling in the first pair that the sole and upper were slightly misaligned has gone away. (I'm pretty sure I read that about Romania somewhere, though I can't find an origin label in the boot. It certainly doesn't say Made in Italy anymore.) Ankle support remains excellent. I would only caution a buyer to be sure you've got good socks because there isn't any ventilation in these boots: once your feet are in, they're committed.

I bought my first pair about a month ago and like them so much that I'm going to buy another pair as soon as my size is back in stock. As mentioned in other reviews, the laces running down to the toes allow you to perfectly fit them to your feet. I initially bought them for the gym. However, they feel so good that I've ended up wearing them everywhere.

Possibly the best sneaker I have had in my adult life. The fit is perfect. There are structure, and support like one would expect from a maker of fine hiking boots, but it is a sneaker all the way. Not just a sneaker, but a stylish one to boot.

These shoes feel very strong and durable. They look great in casual pants or jeans. Nor too heavy, and one of the most comfortable shoes I've owned. They do seem a little stiff near the toes, but hopefully they'll continue to break in. I've had them for about a month or so.

This is my third pair of shoes from Scarpa and the Vitamin did not disappoint. They were comfortable straight out of the box. My only mild criticism is that they are not waterproof.

Awesome shoe! Well made and great style. But very narrow fit. Too narrow for my regular (normal/medium) width feet. Sadly, I have to return them.

This is an extremely well made boot but was too hard in the heel for me. Not enough cushioning. I have issues with my heels hurting so I'm also looking for different boots. I wish they'd have worked. They look great!

These shoes are incredibly comfortable and fit like a glove. The only complaint I have is that the laces are a bit awkward length, meaning that they are too long to single tie and aren't long enough to double tie. Other than that they are stylish and comfortable and I am glad I got them.

Dang, really wanted to like these shoes. I love how they look. But I tried several sizes and no matter what I did, the top front of the shoe pressed down against my toes and the front of my instep in a way that became too painful to put up with. Alas, had to return them.

These arrived in the mail today and were too narrow for my wider feet. They were uncomfortable just walking in the house. Again, I have wide feet, so if you have narrow feet these could be really nice.

Very surprised by these. I ended up doing quite a bit more hiking in these than I originally was expecting, and thought they were excellent. For low tops, they're surprisingly water resistant. I went through a couple of puddles in the range of 2-3 inches, submerging the shoe past the sole, and came out pretty dry. Grip was excellent, even on wet rocks. Best low top hikers I've ever had.

Excellent shoe for outdoor climbing. Torsional stiffness allows to edge on tiny footholds while they flex in the forefoot for slab climbs. These are climbing shoes so size, width and support aren't applicable, in my opinion.

The top edge of the ankle support is a little high and uncomfortable.It ends right on the interior and exterior ankle joints which make the shoe somewhat uncomfortable. I have not walked long enough in the shoe to cause rawness or blistering but this is a concern for me. Other than that issue the sole is comfortable and the shoe design is unique which I like.
